Popcorn Is Coming!
SUPPORT YOUR CAMPS – SELL POPCORN FOR FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS!
(Click here to see recent improvement projects)
You should be proud to be a part of a council with such strong volunteer support, especially in the Popcorn area. We have more volunteers than most of the councils I meet with, and that makes me realize how thankful I am to work with these volunteers. We do offer training, and you have the opportunity to take advantage of it with a unit kernel that understands sales.
Each year we try to look over the past year and try to make things easier for our Unit Kernels and District Kernels. We have more warehouses and more retreats to make it easier for you to attend. We have 53 units in our Celebration Units (selling 10,000 and above) and they help with trainings.
We also have a new, monthly popcorn newsletter that will answer common questions from our volunteers. Popcorn takes commitment, and yes, you could sell something else, but would it fund improvements at your camps? The answer is that without your sales, your camps would not be currently undergoing massive improvement projects. Our Scouts need to know the value of supporting themselves and being proud of their accomplishments.
Come on and help us have another great year of popping good fun!
